My husband has foot fungal problems and we only have one shower/tub... sometimes I sit in the tub with my toddler son when I bathe him. My son and I both have UTIs, just curious if one could have something to do with the other.
Can bathing in a tub that someone with athletes foot has used cause a UTI?

Seek: I dought it this is a different kind of fungus it is not uncommon for you to get athletes foot from a shower sharing with someone else like at a gym or home but it would have to be a pretty bad case but the UTI is normally a different type of bacteria and as you know woman and children are pretty prone to UTI'S But to be on the safe side it would not hurt to pour some bleach in your tub prior to you and the baby taking a bath.
